I thoroughly enjoyed everything ordered! The blackened shrimp over rice was perfect. The chilled crab bites were divine! I loved the mushrooms and the crab cake. The desserts are ginormous!

We only tried the oyster bar. The happy hour is a great deal. They provide 5 different oysters at 1 dollar. One of the best oyster bars in Chicago.

We ate in the bar area at high top tables . Great atmosphere and busy considering it was a Sunday evening. Very friendy, accomodating and efficient service. Escargot reported as very good as were the large cocktail shrimps with super hot horseradish sauce.

There were children at the table next to ours having sliders so although I don't believe there is a children's menu there were items which they could eat.
